Omaha Contested Divorce Lawyers
Strategic Representation for Divorce Litigation
divorce, or contested divorce, is the least likely way a couple will dissolve
their marriage. However, it is a significant method because it can force
resolution. Many other types of divorce, such as uncontested divorce,
collaborative divorce, or
mediated divorce are available, but all those scenarios require the parties to
cooperate in the settlement efforts and engage in respectful communication
with each other. If even one of the parties is unwilling or unable to
do so, then the case must be taken before a judge for a fully litigated
hearing or trial, and the judge decides how the matter will be resolved,
thus moving the parties to a final resolution.

When Contested Divorce Is Necessary
Although many couples would prefer to dissolve their marriage without needing
to go to court to have a judge make decisions for them, sometimes this
is the inevitable path they must take.
You may require a contested divorce when:
Your spouse refuses to proceed with the divorce – In some cases, there may be one side that, for whatever reason,
refuses to move the case along. They may be resisting the divorce altogether,
or their obstinate behavior may be rooted in something else. Nevertheless,
it can cause delays and stress for the party wishing to move the divorce
along swiftly and efficiently. If you face a person that acts like this,
then court may be your only remedy, and your legal representative can
turn to the judge to ask for your desired relief.
You and your spouse disagree on one or more issues – In some cases maybe only one or two issues are causing the conflict,
the court may be needed to resolve these contested and disputed issues.
If your case proceeds to trial, it is not necessary that the judge decides
every issue between you and your spouse. For instance, you and your spouse
may settle many of your issues but have disagreements on just a couple
of things. In that situation, a trial can be had only on those specific
things. It is common that the parties resolve everything except for an
issue on a particular piece of property or maybe a parenting conflict.
In that case, the judge will then allow a trial on those specific points,
and the parties and their lawyers proceed to court on those limited matters.
Once the judge decides those issues for the parties, the result from the
judge and the previous settlement agreement can be combined to draft the
final divorce decree.
Doing What’s Right for Your Situation
Court is nothing to fear. However, you may want to try to avoid it by resolving
your case in other ways, such as, through settlement and negotiation.
However, if those efforts fail to resolve your case, our well-trained
contested divorce lawyers in Omaha can take your case before the court
and advocate the results you desire.
